Lipoic Acid – a vital antioxidant
Lipoic acid helps protect against oxidative stress generated by high glucose levels. Alpha-lipoic acid consists of two different forms (isomers) that have vastly different properties. The “R” form is the biologically active component (native to the body) that is responsible for lipoic acid’s phenomenal antioxidant effect. The “S” form is produced from chemical manufacturing and is much less effective. Typical alpha-lipoic acid supplements consist of the “R” and “S” form in a 50/50 ratio. Pure R-lipoic acid may be 10 times more effective than other forms of lipoic acid and has been called the “mitochondrial antioxidant” because it is a key component of mitochondrial dehydrogenase complexes. The pure R-Lipoic Acid in C-RLA™ supports a healthy inflammatory response and is a potent free-radical scavenger.*
